Hand Crafted Tasting Co. is at it again with their Spring Seasonal installment of the NYC Craft Beer Festival. This season’s brew showcase, held on March 30th, is focused on American craft breweries and their spring released libations. Held at the historic 69th Regiment Armory on Lexington Avenue, the main-drill floor will be a ‘hop’ bed of seasonal tastings, brewer information, great eats, and more. With 75 American breweries slotted to participate there will be over 150 beers to sample from, so matter your beer preference you’ll be sure to find a beer you’ll love.
Tis’ the season for brew—plentiful amounts of the frothy ambrosia overflowing! Beer fest season is in full swing, with the American Craft Beer Fest occurring this past Saturday, the Spring Craft Beer Fest happening in the wilds of Long Island on the 10th, as well as a slew of other tastings occurring throughout the month. Perhaps it’s the impending tempest of emerald debauchery known as “St.Patty’s Day” drawing brewers like moths to the flame. Whatever the case may be, celebration is in order!
